On the morning of Monday 13th May, at the headquarters of Gepetrol, a training course for entrepreneurs began. The course was designed by Icubefarm.com and financed by Atom Financia, with the support of Gepetrol. The aim of the course is to train entrepreneurs and select the five best viable projects which can obtain financial backing.
The course is not only part of the Sustainable Development Goals and productivity strategies, but is also part of some of the recommendations expressed at the Third national Economic Conference, in relation to the strengthening of the national private sector for the creation of employment.
The director of Gepetrol, Antonio Oburu Ondo, advised the entrepreneurs on the essential tools for business success, and stressed that the company is working on a local content law, another or the topics covered at the Third National Economic Conference.
The director of Atom Finance, Francisco Domingo Ndong Micha, affirmed that the project was designed to support young people with projects, which will be analysed in order to determine the best five candidates for financial backing.
Ndong Micha insisted on the aim of creating training opportunities, and recognised that in the past the Government created many opportunities through the awarding of credit that was never repaid, Some, after obtaining finance, disappear; as financial institutions, we thought that before financing the entrepreneurs we had to provide training, so that they would be able to organise the structures they want to create. And take away the idea that the creation of a company is not only worthwhile for them, but also for the Government”.
The Presidential Adviser in Matters of Labour Policy at the Ministry for Work and Social Security, Maleda Idjabe Ngadi, said that the ministry was willing to support initiatives such as this one.
